Effective at cleaning scalp!

I am suffering from hair thinning/hair loss (androgenic alopecia), so I've been on a mission to find (natural) products that will help clean my scalp and keep it well balanced. Glycolic acid has done wonders for my face in the past so I was very excited to try it on my scalp.

Here are some observations so far:

(1) (sorry if this is a bit gross) My scalp smells(?) less. Historically, my hair would get flat and my scalp would start to get oily & smell very soon after I had washed it (as in on the day of), but after using the glycolic acid, it seems like my scalp is squeaky clean (but non stripping) and I find that I can go longer between wash days

(2) along the lines of cleaning my scalp, I think this product gives my roots volume, which is a huge plus as I have fine hair and hence, flatness

(3) I have a sensitive scalp that tends to get itchy (even though I don't have dandruff or flakes oddly enough), even on the day that I wash my hair, but I feel less itch on days that I've used this product.

additionally, some nice-to-haves:

- even my boyfriend (who is usually not very good at noticing cosmetic changes) commented that my hair looked nice on the days that I used this product

- cg approved (I try to follow the curly/wavy girl method)

I don't know if it's improved my hair loss, but I'm hoping that with time, keeping my scalp healthy and clean will encourage more hair growth (I am using other products and tools for the hair loss&growth part anyway). Overall, this product…

The magic I have been searching forever for!

I have a VERY sensitive scalp - it is incredibly itchy (no flakes, just waxy/oily itchiness) which has led me to very mild shampoo and zero conditioner over the years. I use zero product and haven’t dyed my hair in years either. When my ends get a but dry, they get a couple drops of pure jojoba oil. And yet, I have been looking for an exfoliating product for years that would take care of the itchiness that I cannot get rid of. THIS IS IT! This is (from the very first time trying it) absolutely my new go-to product of choice.

My only qualm is that this product comes in a plastic bottle. If it came in glass, it would be a knock-out-of-the-park all-star product. Despite the Inkey List having a whole page on recycling their packaging, only 2% of the world’s plastic is ever recycled, and then only once before it is useless. Glass packaging please!!

Cleans well, but my hair falls out.

I am not sure if its just my skin but I lose a lot of hair when using the product. It does leave my scalp feeling nice and clean but I just don't think I am supposed to have that much fall out with it.

Hello Christina,

we're so sorry to hear this! Our scrub should not be causing hair loss, are you leaving it for recommended 10 minutes only? Our hair is falling out regularly and could be due so many environmental or health reasons. Please get in touch as we would love to get to the bottom of this.

Works better

Tried for the first time and I think it works well as I always had an oily scalp and by using this product oil production is controlled. Let see how it works in future

Saving my seborrheic dermatitis

I am living for this scalp scrub. With the coal tar/anti dandruff shampoos I use this is helping so much with itchiness and decreasing oil production so I can be more comfortable in between washes.
